Cornell achieved a milestone when the percentage of undergraduate women in the College of Engineering climbed to a peak in Fall 2013, according to Sara Hernandez, director of diversity programs for the engineering college.

The percentage of undergraduate women in Cornell’s College of Engineering reached 38.2 percent, according to the University’s frozen file enrollment data, which captures demographic statistics for a given point of time. The figure represents more than an 8-percent increase from fall 2008, according to the same data.
